Honor the victims of September 11 at Healing Field tribute


My Local News Arizona - Advertisement

In memory of those who perished on September 11, 2001, the Exchange Club of Tempe, along with the City of Tempe’s support, will present the Healing Field® tribute beginning Saturday, Sept. 7 through Wednesday, Sept. 11.

Healing Field® is a unique memorial that reflects on the tragedy of that day and pays tribute to the nearly 3,000 innocent lives that were lost. Thousands of American flags will be placed throughout Tempe Beach Park, representing the victims from that terrible day. Activities over the five days include flag viewing, a patriotic concert and two ceremonies on September 11. All are open to the public and free to attend.

Though the attacks occurred eighteen years ago, they continue to connect us every year, both as Americans and as human beings.  Every year, members of the community dedicate thousands of hours to this grassroots effort, from those who coordinate and promote the events, to the workers who physically assemble the nearly 3,000 flags.
